Coca-Cola Brisket


Cola not only tenderizes this brisket, it also makes a fabulous gravy, along with garlic, onion, celery, tomato sauce, and dry onion soup mix.



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with foil.
  2. Rub brisket on both sides with the olive oil. Sprinkle both sides with paprika, salt, and pepper. Place in the prepared roasting pan. Top with garlic, onion, and celery.
  3. Whisk together tomato sauce, cola, and onion soup mix. Pour over the top of the vegetables on the brisket. Cover with foil and roast for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until very tender. Baste with pan juices every 30 minutes.
  4. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Slice against the grain and serve with pan juices.

Yield: 8 servings

The brisket may be made a day in advance, sliced and refrigerated. Reheat in the gravy.
